Teen Wolf AU: Before Stiles’ sophomore year in college, he takes some time off. He goes traveling, mapping out all the places he’s been, all the places he still wants to go. One day, while driving to his next destination, he bumps into Derek Hale, an old friend from Beacon Hills. He invites Derek along spontaneously, and to his surprise, Derek accepts. They travel, spend nights in little Bed & Breakfasts, lay out under the stars, get high. They remember the closeness they had, and the rest is history.
“Hey, you wanna come with me?”
“Are you serious?”
“Yeah. Derek, come on. Get in the car.”
